How to Add Hyper-V Host to Backup Infrastructure
In this page you will learn how to add a Hyper-V standalone host to Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure with PowerShell.
If a Hyper-V host is a part of a cluster, it is recommended that you add a Hyper-V cluster instead of a standalone Hyper-V host. To learn more on how to add a Hyper-V cluster, see How to Add Hyper-V Cluster to VBR.
To add a Hyper-V standalone host with PowerShell, perform the following steps:
- Run Add-VBRHvHost.
- Specify a name of Hyper-V host, which you want to add to Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure. This name can be a full DNS name or IP address of Hyper-V host.
- Specify the user name and password for authenticating with Hyper-V host.
- Optionally specify the port for the connection to Hyper-V standalone host. If not specified, the default port 443 will be used. Add the description of Hyper-V host if needed.
Add-VBRHvHost -Name "HyperVExchange" -User "Administrator" -Password "Password" -Description "Hyper-V Exchange host"
